And it touches on the previous post. A few days back I had a(I thought) small argument with a friend about the environment, pollution, etc.
Starting about a day later, I started getting e-mails from friend listing how the Antarctic is actually melting, Bush is trying to trash a treaty to save the Ozone Layer(Kyoto), etc. 'Industry is dismantling the EPA, industry is being deregulated, all the parklands are being opened to logging, etc. I don't know whether to argue the points or just drop it all.
Depressing thing? One of friend's daughters is majoring in environmental science in college, and friend is a grade-school teacher.
